    I agree! But I guess it depends what position your hand is in? I guess to clarify I mean you put the wedding band first, then the e-ring.

    Anyways, that is what I voted, because that is my understanding of what is traditional. That being said, I currently wear my band on my other hand. I LOVE my ering and I felt like adding anything to that finger would take away from the ering.

    Also this way I didn't have to get a matching band.

    But I assume eventually I will move the band over to the ering, when I am older and tradition takes over! (or when I get another special ring to wear on the right hand!)

          Yeap wedding band first than the ering. :) So the ering is closer the the tip of your ring finger :)

            Well, my band is actually an "insert" -- meaning it is 2 connected bands with a space in the middle for the engagement ring to fit between (so it sort of feels/looks like one ring, if that makes sense).

            If I were to have a single band, I would be wearing it at the bottom of my finger, with the e-ring on top. Whenever I see it opposite, it just always looks kind of odd to me, but everyone has their preference!

              I will wear mine below my engagement ring -- there's something sweet about it being closer to your heart...

                I got a wedding band that did not match my engagement ring. I want to be able to switch which one I wear based on my outfit!

                  I just found out I am having two wedding bands. I wanted my FI and I to have matching bands and he wanted me to have a diamond band. My engagement ring was designed by my FI and I can't really wear a ring next to it. So I believe I will wear my ER on my right and the two wedding bands on my left: Here they are


                  argh... Can't get a pic to post

                  I am wearing mine closer to the heart I feel more comfortable with it this way too, but there isn't a wrong or right way to do it I don't think.

                    With my e-ring, my wedding band actually slides between two bands in the e-ring. For traditional purposes I have always heard the wedding bands goes on first, then the e-ring.
